"LIVING WITH DEPRESSION: A WHY BIOLOGY AND BIOGRAPHY MATTER ALONG THE PATH TO HOPE AND HEALING"  (2011) by Dr. Deborah Serani 

 

"I wish that Serani's Living with Depression had been around when I first began to deal with depression. Patients can benefit from the doctor's perspective and doctors can learn from their patients. That they are both the same gifted author is a blessing to all who deal with mental illness." ~ Delta Burke, Actress

"Living with Depression manages to explain depression in terms of human biology and experience without downplaying either aspect. While Living with Depression is not a medical or psychological treatise, it is perhaps something better ... an easy and comprehensive explanation of depression,  and how to get help." ~ The National Alliance on Mental Illness

"Serani offers a guide book with a soul. She clearly writes of the trials of major depression and the promise of science. And she does so as a gutsy clinical psychologist who shares the wisdom made from her suffering, not just her training." ~ Dr. Patrick Corrigan, Dean of Psychology at the Illinois Institute of Technology
